  • This infographic highlights some of the key findings from our report Modern Performance Management Trends
  • Orgs offered greater clarity to employees around their performance and goals in 2021 compared to 2019
  • Orgs provided employees with greater transparency around compensation and feedback
  • Orgs greatly invested in developing their managers and employees in 2021 than they did in 2019
  • Managers increased the frequency of check-ins, both formal and informal, with employees in 2021

Over the past few years, several orgs have dramatically changed their existing practices, including those around performance management. Our latest study on performance management trends compares our fall 2019, fall 2020, and new fall 2021 data on performance management practices. We also conducted a literature review of more than 60 articles, a roundtable discussion with over 25 leaders, and a quantitative survey of 621 HR leaders and employees and conducted over the summer and fall of 2021.
